The Story So Far...
McKenna Cox is a NYC based Meisner trained actor currently pursuing work in film, TV, theatre, commercials, and sketch comedy/improv. Her latest commercials have been for clients such as Skiplagged, Comcast, Smilo, and the Cooking Channel's Man, Fire, Food with Roger Mooking.
Originally from North Carolina, McKenna is a graduate of the Theatre Arts BFA program at East Carolina University holding a double concentration in Professional Acting and Musical Theatre. Since moving to NYC, McKenna has been involved in several theatre groups such as Naked Angels, Abingdon Theatre Company, The Actor's Project NYC, Rising Sun, Communal Spaces and many more, and she has had the pleasure of performing at highly regarded theatres such as Lincoln Center, El Museo del Barrio, The Cherry Lane Theatre, and Joe's Pub at the Public Theatre. She is also a student at Upright Citizens Brigade, currently training in the Advanced Study Program and has studied under the renowned acting coach, Anthony Abeson, himself a student under the likes of Stella Adler and Lee Strasberg. She is also in On-Camera technique classes with Vance Barber, protegee of Bob Krakower.
McKenna is humbled and excited to be the newest member of Room 28 Comedy, a Latino sketch comedy troupe that performs and films regularly, along with being a member of Bragging Rights, a hit PIT sketch comedy show that performs once a month at various PIT venues.
She is incredibly thankful for her supporting cast of friends and family, especially her parents, without whom very little of her current success would have been possible.
